Pennsylvania Classes of Drugs

Pennsylvania law categorizes all controlled substances.  Each controlled substance falls under a specific class or “schedule” based on its severity, how addictive the substance is and whether there is a known medical use for the drug.  Each schedule carries a different set of penalties and standards.

Pennsylvania Schedules of Controlled Substances

The five drug schedules under Pennsylvania law range from the most serious drugs (Schedule I) to the least serious (Schedule V).
